That seems like a pretty Canadian way of reminding people that this is the flag of the country they live in, and that it's worth remembering that it's a good country to be living in.We understand the flag doesn't mean the same thing to everyone, however, we hope our readers recognize their ability to play a role in shaping Canada's future is a freedom worth acknowledging.
Well I'm gob-smacked. It sounds like the publisher is ashamed of the Canadian banner, or at least is cautious about giving offense to the WOKE crowd. Life's not worth living if done on one's knees.
Not a Naval Ensign - it was a civil Ensign.The "old flag" was technically not the official flag of Canada. Rather it was a naval ensign, although it was used unofficially as a national flag. Technically, the official flag of Canada until 1965 was the Union Jack. The current flag is the first official national flag of Canada.
